HONORING A HOME BUILDER, LATE MRS. SARAH OPARA: THE MOTHER OF MY FRIEND AND BROTHER RT. HON. AUSTIN OPARA KSC
Today, I joined friends and members of the reputable Opara Family in Port Harcourt to celebrate the life of a good mother; Mama Sarah Ihunda Opara.
Mama’s story is one that everybody should take home; her selflessness was legendary and that’s why so many people from across the country came out in their numbers to honor her. Not only did she give birth to some very illustrious children, she was a hard worker who molded them through thick and thin despite all the hard times and all the difficulties that she went through to raise them.
It will remain a great honor to her memory that one of her children rose to the level of the number 6 man in Nigeria.
I am happy to be part of the historical celebration of life today. The convivial atmosphere, the carnival setting and the happiness that was vivid on the faces of everyone at the arena give testimony of God’s grace; His blessings of good health and longevity upon Mama.
My message for mothers is that they should know that the children they produce are the leaders of tomorrow; without them there’s no future. Therefore, every mother should give everything that it takes to make sure that she raises her children in the best way possible. Mothers should give their children the best grooming; to be upright children, very respectful children who respect their elders and take education seriously. Children that will have the courage, the intelligence, and the right tact to demand from society the very best and give to society the utmost. To God be the glory!
